insurance. they don't have a workplace insurance. they are not medicare eligible. they are not a veteran. they want insurance and often struggle with not only price increases at about 16% a year where the average. but everybody is medically underwritten so that any illness, disease, could block you from the market in the first place or put you in a pool that could skyrocket and lock oust. the protection that is the affordable care act added to the individual market, the last market without consumer protections are the very one that is every worker in a small group plan enjoy or in a work site enjoy. you can't be locked out because of a preexisting condition. you must be offered a policy. nur a risk pool so your own disease profile doesn't determine your rates. that is what is happening with that market. more than 50% of the people are not in their policies for a year. a third are there for only six months. it is a very volatile, very expensive, very unprotected marketplace for way too many folks. i have watched you today and watched you being eviss rated over in the house, calls for your
